Registration of cooling towers and evaporative condensers

Under the Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992, all non-domestic buildings with cooling towers and evaporative condensers have to be registered with the relevant council. The reason for registration relates to the control of infectious diseases such as Legionnaires' disease.

Councils are required to maintain a register of cooling towers and evaporative condensers within their area. View West Suffolk Council's Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Register

The council must be notified in writing of any changes to the notification information within one month of the change, or as soon as possible if the cooling tower or evaporative condenser cease operation or are removed.
